Hello hello,

We are currently looking for a single or a couple in June / July for 4 days at a time...(preferably during the week) with the possibility of staying longer.

I run an intimate barn wedding venue , ‘Boutique Barn ‘’. Currently we are closed for the winter. During this time we are working on maintenance, marketing and generally promoting our barns for the next season which starts in spring and continues through until autumn.

Due to the whole covid situation we are wanting someone with skills in marketing to promote our business which relied on a large international market.

The' bridal suite' is the accommodation offered - its totally self contained and private with own kitchen, bathroom, lounge etc all fully furnished ( see photos attached)

Provided is an evening meal and accommodation in exchange for 4 hours work each day. (you will provide your own breakfast and lunch) We are flexible with hours if you are wanting to work more one day and less the next.

Our location is on a private farm (25 acres) just north of Auckland City (45 minutes) in Puhoi. Having your own car would be ideal as its a 15 minute drive from Puhoi township / and Silverdale township, but not a must as we do travel into Silverdale / Orewa every few days so I can pick up from bus station in Silverdale.

We are a family of four, I run Boutique Barn and the farm, and my partner runs a painting contracting business, we have two sons (20 & 23 yrs) who have both recently left home to study in Dunedin and the other to live and work in Auckland city.... we also have horses, chickens, cows, two cats and one very cute border collie dog ‘Poppy’.

Over the past few years we have met many wonderful travellers from all around the world that have become friends / family. We are a very down to earth family just needing a helping hand and love meeting travellers
